The 9 Hot Spots On A Man That He’s Dying For You To Touch

Understanding his nine pleasure powerhouses.

Next time you hit the sack with your guy, prove to him that you really know your way around his body. Here, we highlight 9 hot spots that your man is dying for you to touch!

His jaw. While getting hot and heavy with your guy, pay some attention to his jaw by gently tracing the tips of your fingers across it. “When you stroke a man’s jaw, you’re subconsciously reinforcing to him that he’s masculine, which is an ego boost,” Barbara Keesling, PhD, author of “Men In Bed,” tells Cosmopolitan. Kick things up a notch by starting at his earlobe and working your way down — hot!

His neck. Bury your head in his neck and start kissing, licking, sucking and nibbling him there. Want to up the sensual factor? Begin kissing his shoulder and work up slowly from his neck to his ear, then back down again, brushing his skin with your lips. Make sure you focus on the front area, as it’s extra sensitive.

His ears. Due to a large number of nerve endings, ears are super sensitive to touch — and kiss. Though there’s no science yet to say why ears are such pleasure points, there seems to be a relatively common consensus that they are. So take advantage. “Many men love when their ears are touched,” Amy Levine, a New York City-based sex coach and sexuality educator, tells Glo. “It’s often a forgotten area that can soothe or excite him.” She advices that you place your thumb and index finger on the area where his ear lobe connotes to the tissue near his face. “Then gently pull down and let your fingers slide off so you can start again.”

His butt. While the butt is one of the most sensitive areas on a guy’s body, it’s almost one of the most neglected. But not anymore. “This area is typically neglected because men are so sensitive about their butt, but it’s really responsive to a firm, sexy massage,” Ian Kerner, PhD, author of “Passionista: The Empowered Woman’s Guide To Pleasuring A Man,” tells Cosmo. Try this: Massage his booty while going down on him. If he feels iffy about it, let him know that you’re just going to massage his muscles, not stick a finger in.

Back of knees. "The skin is smoother at the back of knee, and many men love to be kissed or caressed there,” Kerner tells Glo, adding that where there is less hair, there’s more sensitivity. Rev him up by lightly grazing the back of his knees with your fingertips in a circular motion. Remember to keep your touch firm!

His thumb. Pro tip: Suck on your guy’s thumb, as it’s actually a super turn on for a lot of men. “To suck on a man’s thumb evokes sucking on something else, and can help him connect his mind and body during lovemaking. Start off foreplay by gazing into his eyes as you kiss his hands, and then suck on his thumb as a promise for what’s to come,” Mark Michaels, co-author of the book "Partners in Passion: A Guide to Great Sex, Emotional Intimacy, and Long-Term Love,” tells Shape.

His inner thighs. It’s time you pay a visit downtown and explore your guy’s inner thighs! Gently grab his legs and spread them to expose the area — while making eye contact — and start massaging his muscles with light finger strokes, upgrading to a harder touch before finally kissing each side as you make your way up to his package. This is a good way to get his blood pumping in the area so as to automatically up his arousal and thus, give him mind-blowing pleasure.

The frenulum. Not sure what the frenulum is? Here’s a refresher course: the F-spot is the area where the glans meets the shaft on the underside of the penis just below the head. The concentration of nerve endings here is oftentimes compared to the equivalent of a woman’s clitoris. "When giving him oral sex, let your tongue slide over that area,” Claire Cavanah, co-founder of Babeland, tells Shape. “With your hands, stroke it with your thumb while you move your fingers around the shaft.” Watch him go wild!

Lower abs. OK, so your guy doesn’t have abs. Nonetheless, hone in on his belly button with your hands work your way down south. “The area of the abdomen between the navel and pelvis is a fun area to tantalize, and as blood flows to the pelvis and sexual tension gathers, it’s a good area to simulate,” Kerner tells Glo. Rub and touch his skin, improving blood circulation throughout his body. Then, get prepared for an intense night.
